A Window Into Way
Making Our Thinking Visible
It is often difficult to comprehend the extensive amount of thinking, learning, and understanding that is taking place inside your child’s classroom each and every day. A Window Into Way will provide you with snapshots of learning opportunities students are engaged in; experiences in which thinking is valued, visible and actively promoted. By making student’s thinking visible, we can better understand how our students are learning as well as their depth of understanding. Enjoy!
Building a Bridge Between Home and School
The calendar for the upcoming school year has been posted. A quick reference, calendar at a glance, is available as well.
Dear Way Families,
We had a wonderful Fourth-Grade Farewell this morning. Our student performance was a joy to behold. As the school year nears completion, I wish to thank you for partnering so effectively with us. I feel very fortunate to be part of the Way Community.
Tomorrow is a half day of school with dismissal at 12:20. In the morning is our Field Day. Please feel free to stop by, help out, and root teams on during the Tug-O-War.
Report cards will be available for online viewing on June 18, 2019 at 9AM. You must be able to login to My Bloomfield to access. For those returning, emails with back-to-school information will be sent mid August. It's important that all students read this summer, but try to make the reading experiences enjoyable.
All the best, and we will see you in the fall.
All new 5th graders are encouraged to attend a special orientation designed especially for them on August 23rd from 10:00 AM to 12:30 PM at Bloomfield Hills Middle School. Meet your WEB Ambassadors, participate in some fun activities, tour BHMS and start new friendships!
For ideas on how to engage students in summer reading and writing experiences, visit www.bloomfield.org/summerreading. Students are invited to participate in the Reading Without Walls Challenge and share their photos with the hashtag #BHSReadingWithoutWalls on social media.

Dear Way Families,
I want to let you know that we recently were awarded a Bloomfield Hills Foundation Grant for the Way Art Studio! This grant will be used to help your child continue to create and help guide you when assisting your child's creative process. I have created several art take-home studios for your child to check just like they would a library book. If interested, please sign the permission slip that can be found in your child's backpack, or click the link below.
